Brew Stewed Beef | #SundaySupper

This stew is a stick to your ribs kind of dish. With whole new potatoes, big chunks of carrot, slices of beef and a beer based broth – is it a surprise to hear that my husband loves this? This is a very rustic dish, very manly ;)

This week the Sunday Supper team is sharing “One Pot Meals” and boy oh boy do we have lots of goodies for you! Thanks to Kimchi Mom for hosting this week!

To begin, slice up a chuck tip roast into slices about 1/3 inch thick. I used a roast that was about a pound and a half.


In your Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium high heat. Brown the meat on both sides, working in batches. Place the meat in a dish as you brown them.


Slice 2 red onions.


Add in another 2 tablespoons of butter, and sauté the onions until they are golden and tender.


Stir in 1/2 cup of flour, let it cook for a minute.


Pour in two 12 ounce bottles of “amber” beer, along with the browned meat, 3 cups of beef broth, 2 bay leaves, 1 tsp thyme, 1 tsp black pepper and 1/2 tsp salt. Bring this to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for an hour, with the lid on.


After the hour, trim and peel 4 or 5 carrots. Cut them into thirds, and split any very thick pieces.


Wash 2 lbs of “new” potatoes.


Put the carrots and potatoes in the pot, and let this cook covered for about another hour or until the veggies are cooked through.

Brew Stewed Beef
  • 1½ - 2 lb chuck tip beef roast
  • 4 Tb butter
  • 2 red onions
  • ½ c flour
  • 24 ounces "amber" beer
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 -5 carrots
  • 2 lb "new" potatoes, washed and unpeeled.
  1. To begin, slice the roast into ⅓ inch thick slices. Melt 2 tb butter in a Dutch oven over medium high heat. Brown the meat, a few pieces at a time in batches. As you brown a batch, place it in a dish. While it is browning, slice your onions. When all of the beef is browned and in the dish, add the remaining butter to the Dutch oven, along with the onions. Sauté the onions until golden and tender. Stir in the flour and let it cook a minute. Pour in the beer and beef broth. Add the beef back into the pot, along with the bay leaves, thyme, salt & pepper. Bring it to a boil, cover and reduce heat and let it simmer for about an hour.
  2. After the hour, trim and peel the carrots, cutting them into thirds. If the ends are very thick, split them down the center. Place the carrots and potatoes in the pot and recover. Simmer for another hour or until the vegetables are tender.
  3. Enjoy!
